The Captain's Christmas Family by Deborah Hale

Napoleon himself never gave Captain Gideon Radcliffe as much trouble as Miss Marian Murray. The fiercely protective governess won't rest until she gains permission for the daughters of his late cousin to stay on at Gideon's newly inherited estate. He agrees to let Cissy and Dolly remain at Knightley Park for Christmas. But by springtime they—and Marian—must go.

Marian is prepared to believe the captain a tyrant. The truth is far more complicated. Gideon is a kind yet solitary man who sees the navy as his only sanctuary. Can Marian's unwavering faith, and the children's Christmas cheer, convince him he's found safe harbor at last?

It must be very difficult to develop a character - to give realistic, believable qualities as well as make the character likeable. With all due respect I do not feel that author achieved that. I couldn't get over my first negative impression of either ... almost quit reading as I was exasperated over the critical nature of the heroine. She mellowed somewhat but then become "nicely" manipulative and interfering. The heroine was supposedly a sea captain ... I couldn't see that in his personality at all. I did enjoy learning about some of ways Christmas was observed such as frumenty so there were some redeeming qualities. The summary led me to think the story has potential .. unfortunately it was not at all riveting! I finished it because I paid for it.
